Pressley Ridge's services are guided by the Re-Education philosophy. We understand that traumatic experiences can change the way people view themselves, others, and their world, and can impact the individual's safety, well-being, and permanence. With this in mind, engaging the entire family in the treatment and care of the children, adults, and families that we serve is paramount to creating success.
Foster Care & Adoption Trained foster parents ensure children are safe and well cared for in a secure and stable home while we work to reunite them with their biological families or find an adoptive family when reunification isn’t an option.
Community-Based Mental Health Care Individualized services designed to strengthen, preserve and keep families together in order to overcome whatever challenges they may be facing, so that children can remain at home, and in their own schools and communities. Office-based and school-based outpatient mental health services support children, adolescents, adults and families in the community.
Private Academic Schools Education with an individualized, strength-based, holistic approach to academic and behavioral growth with an added focus on social and life skills to help students reach their maximum potential.
